Overview

The choice of Yahweh as refuge makes a unique and creative contribution to an emerging direction in Psalms study: the shape and shaping of the Psalter. Building especially on the work of Gerald Wilson, James Mays, Klaus Seybold and Gerald Sheppard, Creach provides an abundance of helpful data and advances the discussion significantly with his judicious interpretation of the root hsh (“to seek refuge”) and related Hebrew roots. He shows that the arrangement of Psalms 2–89 reflects an editorial interest in which ideas expressed by the hsh field are a foil for complaints of being cast off by Yahweh and that ideas expressed by the hsh field are also among the primary motifs in Psalms 90–106.
